Here’s to the truth.
I love this blog.
Bullfrogs and Bulldogs has been a huge part of my life over the last two years and it means a lot to me. I love that I can go back and reflect on fun stories and projects and see so much of what I have done over the past two years on the property. The thing is, and one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned, is that life gets busy and when you are trying to create a business from scratch, somethings fall to the wayside.
When David and I were first discussing my blog and what it could eventually be I got so much buzz from all the ideas I had. It was going to give you a first hand look at what it really is like to live in the country. What it looked like when a skinny jean and chuck wearing girl left her (somewhat) big city and found a new life in, what felt like, the middle of nowhere. Then, somewhere down the line, it became more about posting what would draw in the most viewers and less about the exciting and also difficult changes I was being faced with.
As you’ve probably noticed, this baby, my baby, has gotten away from me lately. One part of that is the fact that I am juggling being back in school and starting my health and wellness coaching business, The Savoury Soul, and the other part is that I’m also juggling taking care of our home and it being summer and we are always busy during the summer.
But I miss this part of my world. I did, however, get really sick and tired of feeling like I always had to work on projects. I felt myself constantly comparing myself to others instead of being grateful for what I am so fortunate to have.
This blog is a deep love of mine and I don’t want to post because I feel like I have to. I want to post because I feel a deep sense of wanting to share my little corner of this world. I’m not sure how much or when I’ll post or what I will post about. I do know that I always will and I thank you for continuing to support Bullfrogs and Bulldogs.
Now I will leave you with some pictures of our garden. It’s completely gotten away with us this year and things that grew like weeds last year haven’t produced much of anything and vice versa. It drives us a little bonkers but I’m growing to love the guessing game. The will we or wont we get a harvest of this or that.
This year we are actually getting tons of white onion and squash of all kinds. Who wants some zucchini bread?
